This is my first Diesel. Where should I start looking for intake parts and chips? Is that what I should do first to increase milage or am I stating in the wrong spot.

Welcome to the site! What year truck do you have??? Which engine does it have in it? For the most part, getting an intake is just spending $300 on something that you don't really need (about all they do is sometimes make your turbo louder). I would start with an exhaust and possibly a programmer like a predator. It all depends on how you want to use your truck. You won't see a huge gain in mileage from any one mod. It all comes down to how you drive the truck. For the most part, anyone claiming on getting over 20-22 mpg is pulling your leg or not actually hand calculating the mileage. I know for a fact that if you put a programmer on your truck, it will throw off the DIC (if you have one). If I went by my DIC, I would be getting 26-28 on the highway.....well, I get more like 17-19 empty. There are some vendors on this site that will give you a good deal on upgrades and help you decide what you need for what you want to do with the truck.
